Listeners vent on filibusters and fracking.

Republicans in the U.S. Senate just blocked another Obama judicial nominee through the "filibuster" rule (60 votes needed to proceed to a real vote), and California just released proposed rules for "fracking."

Tell us what YOU think on these issues...

Ariane Holm of Cover Oregon explains the workings of the Application Fairs.

The federal healthcare.gov website is the focus of anger and the butt of many jokes these days, since it has yet to deliver on the promise of allowing people to browse and sign up for health insurance.

Trish Welch and Ardis Fraser talk about the work of Lifespan Respite.

We did not used to worry so much about dementia in old age, but then we also did not live so long a few decades ago. 

November is National Alzheimer's Awareness Month, a chance to get acquainted with the many programs and offerings for people who are either patients of a particular kind of dementia, or people who just want to know more.

Roy Keene and Kevin Matthews talk about boosting rural communities but not cutting so many trees.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. 

Did anybody think in the early 90s that we would still be talking about the appropriate uses of public forests two decades later?

Working To Expand The Plastic Bag Ban

Sarah Higgenbotham talks about lobbying the Ashland City Council for a plastic bag ban.

Take a guess at how many bags are used at stores in Oregon over the course of a year. 

Multiply 3.8 million by your best guess on use per person, and we get… 1.7 billion, by some estimates.

Paul Kivel separates Christians from the pervasiveness of Christianity in society in "Living In The Shadow of the Cross."

Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau brings us up to date (11/15) on the blast investigation.

It appears only luck prevented a bomb from causing more damage at the Jackson County District Attorney's Office on Wednesday morning.

An explosive device shattered windows at the vacant DA's office, but the propane tank it was apparently meant to detonate did not explode.
